COLERAINE FC paid a visit to the Lodge Hotel last week to play against some members of the Northern Ireland Learning Disabilities Special Pool Section…
The special challenge match was a competitive affair with the score locked at 10-10. The final match was between Clifford Healy (the Northern Ireland Specials Pool Champion) and Coleraine number one seed Trevor McKendry.
It was the first-team coach who emerged with victory to seal a hard earned win for Coleraine by 11 frames to 10. The Specials are looking forward to the challenge next year to gain some revenge.
Oran Kearney was victorious in his match, but it’s believed that Brad Lyons and Martin Smith might need more practice on the table!
Special mention to John McIlreavy and all involved with the Specials for arranging the match.
The Specials cry is ‘Come on the Bannsiders’
